The search mechanism is still rather primitive.
An advanced search is needed, to restrict search results to
- a specific date range
- using quotes to insist
- search a specific member's posts (default: the member that is searching)
- show only threads that have no replies
- show threads which have unread replies
Options should be available either singly or in combination (except if there are options that are inherently mutually exclusive). The chosen options need to remain available for refinement after the search
Search options should include all words or any words. Entering a phrase in quotes should require the words to appear consecutively.
Display options should include date order, relevance and popularity
